Summary: Filters need to be able to trigger AppleScript script → Filters: Filters need to be able to trigger AppleScript script

This would be tremendously useful for me! I currently use a filter combined with two cron jobs running some slightly gnarly shell script to channel particular e-mail attachments to a web site. How much better it would be to be able to send it automatically to AppleScript to handle!
I would suggest that if you could extend this on two levels 1) you should be able to execute any shell-type script provided that the interpreter is present: Perl, Python, Ruby, etc. 2) extend to all operating systems.

This would be a great feature to have. I know the apple mail client is capable of executing applescript through a filter. How hard could it be to make thunderbird capable of executing different types of scripts?
This would add almost infinite functionality to Tbird, and be much more powerful than extensions. How much of a security issue would it be?
I suppose if this were implemented, then Tbird could run bash scripts on Linux as well?
This is implemented as part of the filtaQuilla add-on so I think I am going to mark this a 'wontfix'. See http://mesquilla.com/extensions/filtaquilla/ If someone has a strong feeling otherwise, please re-open.
